Hey, DJ, this is TOOTMO (well, Judge TOOTMO since I sent out that call for you.) Thanks for responding.

Wish I could remember the exact reason I called you forth but I can't (though, I am sure it was important.) I think in the spring of 2011 I was reading McNally's "Long, Strange Trip" and it must have sent me to the Avalon shows.

What are some of the other shows that you saw? You may be a rare specimen of GoGdius Sprectrumus Maximus: not many early heads are still going to shows 44 years later!

Hope you stick around.

Hi Tootmo,
What a (wonderfully)strange trip this has been. May 2011 I was getting ready to go to see Furthur at Shoreline in Mountain View,with my son and his girlfriend. I,for some reason,entered my user name from my Playstation account into the Google browser. It took me to the Oct 12,1968 show and I was flabbergasted!
I am now preparing to see Further at shoreline with my son and his girlfriend again(Sept 30,2012) and revisited this site.
Glad I did.
That was maybe the best I saw the GD. I wish Pig was there.
When I did see Pig he was looking pretty frail. I thought it was speed,not alcohol.
The worst I saw them(they did even play)was at Altamont Speedway in Dec,'69. That was the worst place to trip.
I had a major Freak Out. It ended my acid days for many a year!(people were melting like candles)Freaky!
Peace-out my friend,and best regards,
